Just log in to your paypal account, and check. These are common emails, usually saying you purchased from Amazon or Ebay. DON'T CLICK ANY LINKS IN AN EMAIL!!! Go straight to the Paypal website and check your account. If it's not there, just delete the email.

Login to paypal, check the account status to see what has happened to the payment. Generally if the account receiving is non-existant - the payment will not go thru. If it has gone thru then contact paypal ASAP to get it reversed or cancelled.

Notice that the second one doesn't have an '@' sign, which an email address should have.

You have sent money to some the ID

Now, this is to try recover your money.

Go to "Resolution Center" in PayPal

Click "Dispute a Transaction"

Select "Item Dispute"

Enter the Transaction ID of the payment sent. [Click "find transaction ID if you already don't know it. I hope you will recognize the amount sent from the history."]

Click "continue"

Now, follow the instructions.
You will have to write something describing the problem.
Maybe you can write "Hey, I have not received the .......... that I bought on...... . Have you already sent the item?"

Now, you have to ask the seller his PayPal ID. From where did you buy the item? I hope it is some website.

Please tell me if there is any other problem.

SOURCE: Hi I Am from INDIA. I withdrawn money on 03 oct

I am also in India and I used to do the same transaction. Please wait for upto two more days and if it's not credited to your account. You better call the Bank and clarify. I am sure that there's no paypal issue in India at the moment as recent months.

When you say, "completed on 04 oct 2010..." means the transaction was transferred to the bank from your paypal account, but if the staff haven't processed the transaction, it'll not be credited to your account. I takes at least 4 days and at most 10 days.

I hope this helps and clears your doubt.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Take it to a store that sells them, they will be happy to determine if it is a fake. Take the opportunity to see, feel and appreciate what a real one feels like and you will probably be able to tell in future if it is fake or not. Beware, there are some good 'fakes' out there. And remember, Only fake people wear fake watches.

I have a watch that has the marking rolex quartz and on the back its engraved GENEVE 59312 and the Rolex Crown i have seen many people saying that this is fake because this number doesnt exist. Many...

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
  • Take a look at the second hand. Is it ticking or is it sweeping? If it's ticking, that's your fake. A Rolex second hand sweeps around in one continuous motion. But beware, as of 2005, the good fakes have caught up to this technology.
  • Look for the small engraved crown at the 6 o'clock mark on the crystal. Most fakes will have some sort of large, obvious version of a crown, but this mark on a real Rolex is almost impossible to spot with the naked eye.
  • Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.
  • Most new Rolex models have an added model number engraved at the end of the watch end-link. This engraving includes the band model and two tiny Rolex crowns. Your good fakes will have something similar, but not all three indicators.
  • If you're being sold an authentic Rolex (in good condition and in perfect working order) for anything less than $500, become suspicious. If it's in nice shape, it doesn't really lose a lot of appreciation, and in some cases, it increases in value.

    I purchased item #110419649382, Very Scarce 1935 $1 Bank of Canada Note for $82.00, and have not received the note to date. However I mistakenly gave positive feedback on the note I have not received,...

    If you had purchased this item from an auction site. I think you will need to email the administrator(s) of the site explaining to them what happened. Then they will try contacting the owner(s) of the item in question here, since he/she is operating under the Terms and Conditions of the site owner(s).
